Top 10 Creepiest Courage the Cowardly Dog Villains


The Top Ten

1 King Ramses

King Ramses, even after I watched the other episodes in later years, still gives me chills to this day. I am a little biased considering that he appeared in the first episode I watched, but the atmosphere, design, and that damn VOICE, make him so sinister. Best of all, he does literally nothing but stand there and taunt them while the curses do the rest. Plus, he has the darkest intro of any villain in the series: he appears as a shadow on a car, speaks, and straight-up murders two thieves. And don't even start me on his theme song.

The man in gauze
The man in gauze

My favourite band is, by far, Dark Tranquillity, therefore I will say that King Ramses is the scariest villain in all of Coward the Courageous Dow. Zero Distance! From where do you see yourself?! I want to see you show disgust for sympathy, honour and bravery.

Here are a couple of reasons he may be no. 1. 1) CGI. 2) Eerie voice by director John R. Dilworth. 3) Letting locusts eat people when they are herbivores. Other than that, there are some things good about this guy. First off, he started the different animation era. Then the body movements on this guy. #hilarious. If you pay attention to his body, he has an large upper torso, but meek like legs, which is never used again a Courage episode. But I think what King Ramses did to the thieves is the locusts send the cats to jail, then when Eustace got greedy, Ramses put him in his slab as a temporary jail. Don't know why Courage is an ally of his an the Courage the Cowardly Wiki, but I don't care!

2 Freaky Fred Freaky Fred Freaky Fred is a fictional character from the Cartoon Network animated series, Courage the Cowardly Dog.

Just look at that lovely smile! - Spongehouse

God this guy scares me. Not just the way he looks, but the way he talks. Not just that, but in the scenes when he is giving Courage the haircut from hell, the music, man... and another thing that creeps me out, is that if you look at the scenes when he is giving Courage the haircut from hell, take away the shaver, look at his hand movements, the way he says "Naughty" over and over again, and how Courage doesn't let him shave his backside... memo to Fred: were you trying to molest Courage via shaving him? He's so freaky... wow I didn't mean to make it that long... but I still think that Fred is the scariest of them all.

This guy is so scary and creepy, he wants to cut Courage's hair that is so terrifying. I would die if I saw this guy I'd say Kitty the Mask is second though after this freaky monster. And the way he talks and the ghost girls singing in the background just makes him a demon. "Let me cut your hair Courage". Jesus Christ he's horrid.

The thing is, he doesn't intend to be evil. He is just insane, which is what makes him so much creepier! The large, crooked smile mixed with his endless rhyming and singing ghost children just makes him the type of villain to give you pure nightmare fuel and the fear of going to the barber shop! - Daviddv0601

3 The Blue Thing

He's creepy and all he says is "you're not perfect". I like the show, but it seems like all the villains are nightmare fuel.

Even though whatever the hell it is isn't my favorite of all the villains, it scarred the sh** out of me. This was the last episode of courage to cowardly dog and I think the creators probably knew that and that's why they made it so scary. I mean what the f*** was that! I'm also surprised the gerbil (was it Dr. Gerbil? ) from human habitrail wasn't up here somewhere... I mean look at the eyes and think about what's happening.

About a year ago (2013) I first saw "you're not perfect" scene I was planning to see the entire episode but I ended up seeing... Well this. When I first saw it didn't scare me that much (the same year creepypastas really scared me). And now looking back at it That's when I started to get disturbed, it's Pretty terrifying and extremely disturbing. I just can't believe it in a kids cartoon and the that's the last episode (aired in 2002). Looking at it I think it looks like some blue deformed fetus. On a YouTube video a guy typed in "it's satan's uterus"?! I couldn't think straight for 3 days and only had a 3-6 hours of sleep that's how creeped out I was looking back at it

The only episode I remember because it haunts me that badly

4 Katz

Why isn't he at least no. 2?! He is the most sinister and also recurring villain of the show. I would consider him as Courage's archenemy but he wouldn't hesitate to kill Courage, but ANYONE who gets in his way! Also his accent makes him sound like a James Bond villain! I love this guy. Needs to be higher on the list. - Daviddv0601

Katz is obviously the best! Who else would be evil enough to make evil jam, breed evil spiders, and attempt to destroy a submarine to promote his own business?!?

This is the villain I remember seeing the most throughout the series. The creepiest thing about him was his voice, though.

I love katz I mean who would be that evil I think he's the most evil courage the cowardly dog villain!

5 The Great Fusilli

The ending disturbed me the most. Courage tries to go back to a normal life by USING THEIR DEAD BODIES! It was the Season One finale! If there wasn't another season, THAT IS HOW IT WOULD'VE ENDED!

The villain didn't really scare me. It was really the ending of the episode that I found extremely dark. - Daviddv0601

Got comeuppance when he turned into a puppet. The alligator was funny and was fooled real easily, I thought that was silly. But the end was arguably creepy, as Courage was using his owners who were puppets to live normally. however discontinuity happens a lot in this show so it probably wasn't meant to last that way.

It's the infamous ending that was really creepy courage is seen playing with Muriel and eutsace as puppets and doesn't realise that they're dead. When I first saw this thought "was courage insane/out of his mind?! " Although I still like the "stupid dog you make me look bad"

6 Spirit of the Harvest Moon

I was 7. So far none of the other villains even fazed me. Then... This guy appears. I've never cleared a room so fast in my life. I had to beg my brother to go in the room and turn off the T.V. because the harvest moon spirit was THAT terrifying! He's sorta disturbing to look at now, but man... He really was the single most scariest villain in the show.

This is actually one of my favorite episodes because I thought it was funny when the moon said get out and then Muriel said that's not nice and then he said you did not let me finish and then said it is time to hit the road and muriel said that's not much better. Also when Eustace said would you look at that and Muriel thought he was talking abot the spirit even though it was the leaking pipe. Also when they were arguing for the 10 minutes they had to grow something.

No, this thing, still gives me nightmares to this day, just no

Isn't Harvest Moon a name of a video game? - MLPFan

7 Kitty (The Mask)

She's somewhat creepy, but good. She's not scary to me.

That mask is ugh *shutters* - Spongehouse

To me, I never understood subliminal texting or anything, only that gangster dogs were abusing Bunny... but man, the scariest thing for me about this episode: the uncanny valley's masked kitty. She is so creepy and that's why the beginning music and scene are the scariest for me. Also one of the scariest episodes in general.

She is just creepy. The mask, the gliding sheet, but mostly how she looked into Muriel's window in that one scene.

8 The Stitch Sisters

They were pretty creepy. I'm fact their so scary that they are on here twice - Spongehouse

A little bit scarier than queen of black puddle

They literally require you to forget everything to join the club

9 The Violin Girl

This was the most disturbing thing I have ever seen. Minus blue guy, return the slab and the bananas. I am a ten year old girl. And I am not lying.

If she appears in Rick and Morty and scares the two, I think Rick would shoot her with his laser gun.

She isn't really a villain because she really didn't do anything

Holy crap! She didn't really do much, but man, she was freaky. - td05

10 The Bed Demon

It's a demon! - Spongehouse

Why would they do an exorcist show on courage

More of a mixed bag, the plot here is scary and demonic but the demon that uses Muriel has some funny lines.

Not that I support the occult or anything. That's just evil and ungodly.

The Contenders

11 The Queen of the Black Puddle

Really Guys, the queen of the black puddle is obviously the best answer choice and let me tell you why first she comes from a very darkened creepy puddle and second she tricks people luring them into the puddle with her hard to resist whispers and not only that she then kid naps that person and lock them up in her under water ocean castle and then eats them then and there that is really scary if you ask me. Also she can appear in any from of a liquid she is obviously the best I love her so much so now tell me, why is she #9 anyway? it seem seems like to me she should be at least be between #5-3. Unlike king Ramses or what ever who mainly just gets mad when someone takes his slot and don't give it back but I mean come on who is everyday speaking going to take his stupid slot anyway, other than that he is no harm at all be cause he is just sleep until you take his slot he is really no harm unless you take his slot and waken him so tell me why is he even #1?... there I think I made my ...more

Quite frankly that thing scares the crap out of me, so your not wrong

When I first saw this episode when I was really little, I already had a fear of bathrooms/bathtubs. This episode did NOT HELP at all. Still scared of her and I'm 21.

I don't know what it was about her, perhaps the fact that she was portrayed perfectly outward, but pure evil on the inside. She always made me uneasy.

12 Dr. Zalost

Eh. He's not that scary in my opinion - Spongehouse

13 Dr. Le Quack

Dr. Le Quack is so the best, such a funny character, so sly and smart!

Best villain, save for Katz!

14 The Mummy Baker
15 Mad Dog

The thing that makes Mad Dog the scariest villain is that he’s the most realistic villain on the show

This one is the only scary one because I understood very well what he was doing and that was probably abusing bunny and kitty sexually, mentally, and physically. If I had seen it when I was younger it probably would have been okay. But I saw it when I was 12 and knew much more.

I was misled while younger and was a pervert, however I repented my ways after it hurt some people, sadly. This guy though, doesn't repent. Quite sad what misuse of yourself does to others...

This monster is actually a pimp and a domestic abuser. It's strongly implied that he's use to killing people and breaking the minds of women. he's completely irredeemable, unlike Katz and Rameses. How worse can you get?

16 The Chicken from Outer Space

This guy wants to remove Courage's head, and stick it on his neck. That alone is disturbing

Wow, surprised this guy isn't any higher

They should've ate him. Good villian though, reccurs a few times.

There are many reasons this guy is scary. First, he turned Eustace into a psychopathic chicken in the pilot episode. Next, when he comes for revenge, he's HEADLESS! Finally, he rips heads off, and left Eustace headless for that traumatizing ending.

In conclusion, the chicken is TERRIFYING!

17 Windmill Vandals

The feel like they do not belong in this show

This actually scared me more than the blue guy the first time I saw this episode. felt so dark.

Dilworth was pushing the FCC with this one.

Scary ass bitch

18 Eliza and Elisa Stitch

They freaked me out

They were pretty creepy! - Spongehouse

They have 2 heads. What the hell. That is disturbing.

I'd never seen Courage but I just babysat kids for two days who watch it nonstop. No doubt in my mind that this is the creepiest thing I've seen in a long time.

19 Clutching Foot

Or the fat lady gets it, see?

Scarier than King Ramses Curse, which I didn't find scary.

This morning, me and my brother watched King Ramses Curse and clutching foot. We were (suprisingly) not scared of king rames curse, but we were so disgusted by this grosteqe episode, we could'nt even watch the whole thing, and it was boring.

20 Cruel Veterinarian

I'm kind of glad that he get brutally mauled by dogs he spent to another space.

Oh man, he is sociopath. He is making experiments at animals, and his passion is sending doggies to another planet (he send even courage's parents). And in his lab rooms we can see some scary stuff, holy god he's crazy scientist. And in my imagination this creppie dude make experiments on even katz, le quack and duck bros! He is total horrid psych, but still definitely my favourite baddie in this cartoon! by the way I add him on here

Man put him he is 0.4 precent while big bayou is 0.1 precent that alone should put him

21 Dr. Gerbil

Some don't like the song during the chase scene

It's just weird

22 Errol Van Volkheim

King Ramses wasn't the one who scarred me as a kid it was this guy!

I thought this dude was cool

So scary...

23 The Banana People

How are they scary? The most scariest part (which wasn't really scary) was when the banana people got eaten by the apes.

24 Eustace Bagge Eustace Bagge Eustace Bagge is a fictional character from the Cartoon Network animated series, Courage the Cowardly Dog.

Watch ball of revenge

This one ain't scary but is a great enemy of courage

25 King of Flan

Super creepy

Haha not scary but funny

26 The Big Brain

Little brain is funny. "Car broke, phone yes? "

He wants your kindness

27 Evil Weevil

He's a weevil. How were you supposed to know what a weevil was as a kid!?! That made him creepier in my opinion.

28 Schwick

If you're not a fan of bugs, Schwick's not your guy.

He is mine

29 Benton Tarantella
30 Amazing Mondo

This guy's real form is so creepy that when I first saw him I got the shudders

Weird Guy

31 Mr. Nasty

He looks a demon of electric that eyes is darkness I can't sleep of that.

32 The Floating Head

You mean Spirit of the Harvest Moon?

It's called the harvest moon

33 Mime

This guy scares me more than Satan's uterus.

34 The Bullfrogs
35 Demon In the Mattress

Not scary

36 Dr. Vindaloo

Not scary, but not helpful usually.

I know he's not a villian but he should be.he's always shaving his body hair.And you never see his eyes and even if you do his eyes are yellow.i'm starting to think he's Doctor zalost's son.also every time I see him I can't help but look behind myself.he's just creepy!

37 Conway

He looks so ugly that I cannot sleep at night

38 Witch

I saw a image about her then I got scared ps I'm a boy and I'm really scared right know

39 Big Bayou

A python that embodies all forms of pride, and utilizes forbidden swamp magic to enslave innocent creatures. On paper not to scary but if you count that has his slaves stuff his shed skins (then have them displayed all over the bayou) and not afraid to use his lethal venom.
